Although it doesn't looking from the outside this was one of the highlights of our trip to Tarragona.
I admit when I first went in my prime concern was does it have toilet? (It does and they're surprisingly nice) but after discovering the answer to that question satisfyingly quickly we want in to explore the ruins for a couple of hours.
Much of the site is subterranean including the vaults that once have access to the enormous circus. There's an impressive 90m vault but the site also allows you access to two towers that give great views over the Tarragona skyline.
In addition to the usually impressive Roman aspect there are also some rooms about the medieval history of the area in addition to one that covers the use of a tower as a prison during the Spanish civil war and during the Franco dictatorship. And all for under 4 euros and nippers go free. And there's a toilet. Much better than the Ampitheatre( same price: pointless). Go here instead.
